New businesses require careful planning and attention to multiple details including the business concept, financing, offices, staff, marketing, suppliers and regulation to name but a few. We can help you with one of the most important steps in opening a new business – incorporation. We will assist you and advise you on the best international jurisdiction for your business’s incorporation.
First decide what kind of legal business entity your enterprise will be – a corporation, limited liability partnership or limited liability company. Next choose the jurisdiction where you will incorporate your business. The type of business entity and the jurisdiction chosen will form the core of your company’s legal structure and effect how and where you file your taxes, personal liability and more.
Choosing a Type of Business Entity for your New Company
The most prevalent form of legal entity is the Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) or LTD. One of the most important functions of an LLC or LTD is that it separates the business owner’s personal liability from that of the company. A LLC or LTD is a separate legal entity from the company owners. The LLC or LTD company can own property, assume liability, sue and be sued, pay taxes and enter into contractual agreements as an individual, separate legal entity from the business owners. The LLC is popular with small companies giving the legal protection of a corporation but maintaining the tax benefits of a partnership. For more information, read about company documentation. When choosing a legal entity for your new business it is important to consider your present and future business goals. GBO can assist in choosing the best legal business structure for your company.

Offshore Incorporation for Different Industries
Real Estate companies incorporated in an offshore jurisdiction can deal in commercial real estate internationally. By completing property licensing via the company there will be transparency for investors; tax benefits in the country where the property was purchased and ongoing property management will be easier.
E-commerce businesses selling products or services need a legal business entity; a business bank account and payment systems. By incorporating an e-commerce business offshore, it can be managed in a functional manner, legally and transparently. As a legal entity your e-commerce business can send invoices to suppliers; enter into contractual agreements and receive payments from customers.
International companies looking to expand into new jurisdictions by establishing additional businesses internationally can accomplish this through offshore companies. For example, companies like Amazon and Google have numerous offshore companies.
Other industries that benefit from offshore incorporation include gaming and online businesses like marketing, affiliates, tourism and media.
